Dental health is intimately related to nutrition and diet and a thorough understanding of these relationships, and the preservation of health is an integral part of dental practice. The focus of modern dentistry is shifting from the filling and extracting of teeth towards prevention of dental decay and disease. The changing undergraduate dental curriculum reflects these changes and patients are increasingly asking for information on the best way to look after their teeth. Nutrition, Diet,and Oral Health is written for undergraduate students, covering the information they need in this field during their courses, as well as postgraduate dental students particularly in paedodontics and the GDP. Developed to help the reader build an understanding of the relationship between diet and the prevention of oral disease, this book is well illustrated in full colour and includes case-histories, information boxes and recommendations for further reading.

Online, you can review the same questions plus an additional 420 case-based items related to Component B in 1) practice mode or 2) timed, exam-simulation mode with randomized tests that match the number and distribution of questions on the NBDHE. From a team of dental hygiene experts including lead editor Barbara Bennett, this Q&A resource is an excellent supplement to any NBDHE content review book! More than 1,680 multiple-choice questions provide comprehensive practice spanning the entire NBDHE, with 1,250+ items relating to Component A — more than six times the number of questions on the actual exam! — and 420 case-based questions related to Component B. Rationales accompany each question, fully explaining why each answer choice is either correct or incorrect and thus serving as secondary content review. Distribution of questions matches each category on the NBDHE test specifications, ensuring that you have adequate practice for each content area. An Evolve companion website includes all 1,250+ questions from the book plus additional case studies with color images and accompanying questions, available either in practice mode with instant feedback or in exam-simulation format with results and feedback provided at the end of the exam. A test creator and timer on Evolve generates NBDHE-style tests that mimic the number and distribution of questions on the NBDHE and also provides realistic practice with time management during the exam. 16 detailed case studies on Evolve, each of which includes a patient medical/dental history, completed periodontal chart, oral radiographs, clinical photographs, and 20-35 multiple-choice questions for patients in the five main categories covered on the NBDHE (adult periodontitis, pediatric, geriatric, special needs, and medically compromised).
